“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

My wife and I spent four nights at the hotel. From the moment we met Howard and Catherine
we knew we were in good hands a friendly smiling welcome and the offer of a cup of tea. The rooms were spotless and fresh with little homely touches.Breakfast was hot and nicely cooked in pleasant surroundings. Catherine has a good knowledge of the area and was happy to give advice and tips. Howard printed vouchers for us ,nothing was too much trouble. We asked to borrow a cool bag to have a picnic at battle,when we opened it Catherine had put bread ,crackers ,apples ,butters etc.We have stopped in many places over the years but this takes some beating thank you so much we will be back. P.S Sorry it's late I did a review a few weeks ago and it obviously didn't save. Chris and Mandy West Midlands.

What a lovely welcome we received on arrival Catherine made us a pot of tea served with biscuits.
Our front bedroom was lovely,clean and comfortable with a view over the seafront and bowling green.For breakfast there was a choice of cereals,yoghurt and most delicious fruit salad which must have taken some time to prepare! This was followed by a nice full English cooked to perfection by Howard.
We would certainly recommend this guest house and would like to return ourselves in the future.

We only stayed at Bassets for one night but it was enough to realise what a lovely B&B it was. The room was spotlessly clean, the bathroom shiny and modern. The bed lovely and comfortable. The front rooms and the dining/sitting area have views of the sea, including a little balcony where you can have breakfast. We had a lovely welcome from Catherine and Howard and there are nice little touches like asking you what time you would like breakfast the night before and what you like to eat. They welcomed us and my husband's 83 year old sister (who lives in Eastbourne so wasn't staying at Bassets) with a pot of tea and biscuits! Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms good but double overlooking sea looked nice

This is the 2nd time this summer we have stayed here. The rooms are always very clean so is the whole house. The bathrooms are squeaky clean and the towels as white as snow.THE breakfast is superb and there is always lots to choose from.The best part of all though is the friendliness of the hosts of Bassets.Catherine and Howard make you feel as though you are walking through your own door . A wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: Front rooms have sea views.

After a long hot journey we were welcomed by Cathryn and Howard and a much appreciated pot of tea. Howard cooks a good full English breakfast and Cathryn cooks an excellent omelette. She says that is all she can cook! The house is clean and very comfortable as are the bedrooms. We even had a large fan in our room to combat the heat. This is their first season as guest house owners, nothing is too much trouble for them and they have done a wonderful job. We will be back again in November, they plan to stay open all year round.

Room Tip: This hotel is on the sea front, and all rooms are a good size, Front rooms have sea views and top fl...

This hotel is beautiful, absolutely spotlessly clean.. Catherine and Howard were the most amazing hosts, made us feel like we were family, calling us my our first names. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was exceptional.We would definately stay here again and have already recommended it to friends . Well done and thank you.

Room Tip: Room 1 was very spacious.

We stayed in room 6 (family room) with our 11 year old grandson.
Beautiful sea views from our window, two comfy chairs and a table where you could sit and enjoy watching the boats and bowling on the green just across the road.
Our room was spacious, comfortable and very clean indeed.

Opposite was The Redoubt Fortress.
When we stayed they had a special weekend and our grandson really enjoyed spending the afternoon in the fort watching the re-inactments etc.
It was exciting watching the 'skirmish'...when the French Soldiers took over the Fort -
he even helped the Army Doctor in the amputation of a Soldiers leg!

Catherine and Howard were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast was lovely, i really enjoyed the fresh fruit salad and activia yoghurt.
Hubby had full cooked breakfast every day, which was very nice. Grandson asked if he could have a bacon sandwich, he was told 'of course' so that's what he had every morning...
he said it was the best bacon sandwich he had ever had! (Thanks Howard)
Breakfast on the Terrace was a nice touch.

Bassets House is so close to the beach, and a safe path area runs along the front, where our grandson enjoyed spending time riding on his new mini skateboard.

There is plenty to do in Eastbourne, our Grandson was never bored,
he really enjoyed visiting the Smugglers Caves at Hastings, but couldn't wait to get back to Eastbourne, which i can understand as it has such a lovely feel to it, so relaxed.
We certainly packed a lot into our four days!

Catherine and Howard were really lovely to out grandson, he loved chatting to them about his day.

We would definately stay here again without a doubt.

Room Tip: Sea views at front, all rooms have their own special features.
